Bacon-Apple Pancakes

Barely even counts as a recipe, but super worth making! I got some bacon that came from one of my coworker’s pigs, so it’s real good bacon, and I wanted to do something more interesting than I usually do with bacon. You can really taste the bacon in these, and they’re a good combo of filling but still light, making them a great brunch food!


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 grated apple
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon

An extra tart apple would be good in this!

Stir together all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Cook pancakes in a hot skillet, using some of the bacon grease or some butter to grease the pan.

I’m pretty awful at making/flipping pancakes, but just do it like you normally do – flip when bubbles have started and then finished rising to the top on the first side, then remove from the stove once browned on the second side. I used a 1/4 cup scoop to scoop batter, but if you like bigger or smaller pancakes, do what works for you!

At this size, I got 8 pancakes.

Easy, and delicious!
